The Peace Center reaches more than 4,000 people annually through our school-and community based programs.
Here are just a few:
*The Bullying Prevention Resource Center offers support for youth who have been bullied and their parents, trains teachers in how to create safe classrooms, and provides strategies for anyone who has been bullied.
*‘Respecting Me, Respecting You’ is a school-based character education program for elementary students, which focuses on building emotional self-awareness, empathy and responsibility. Kids learn practical ways to manage anger, recognize emotions, how to intervene effectively when they witness bullying, and the importance of self-respect and self-care.
*‘Celebrating You, Celebrating Me’ is for fourth-graders and works on building community, challenging racism, and sharing and listening through age-appropriate activities. Kids come out of the program with the ability to recognize prejudice and with tools for how to respond compassionately to their peers.
*Girls Unlimited provides seventh-grade girls with an open and safe forum to discuss the issues and pressures they face during the emotionally charged years of middle school. Through shared stories and role-playing, girls learn how to recognize their own emotions and the importance of treating themselves and others with kindness and respect.
*The Peace Center offers mediation services, conflict coaching, “Dialogues on Race,” Restorative Justice trainings and interventions, and Racial Equity training.
